'm not asking anyone else to write any checks until i hear something that makes sense to me. since the election there have been a lot of gatherings and meetings among those who are active in raising money. the question is are we united in drying that up from the people i have talked to? the answer is yes. krystal ball, when you have lost the socialites, i believe the republicans have nothing left to lose. >> well, it -- >> what else is there? this is rock bottom? >> it looks pretty bleak. >> a hack, fundraiser. >> she had strong words there, well, i was looking back at the analysis "the washington post" did last summer regarding the republican party, and the sort of old republicans which i assume she is, fiscally conservative, typically northeastern, typically well off still make up about 22% of the party. so a decent chunk of the party. and what georgeette there shows, they make up a certain amount of the funding base which is why they have had a lock on the republican party. and the innovation for the growth of the tea party is their ability to have larger scale donor movements, smaller dolla
to get his picks into his cabinet. and coming after losing the presidential election, losing seats in the house and senate, to democrats, the republicans have been looking for a way to ding the president. they were able to ding him by denying him the choice of susan rice, the u.n. ambassador to be the president's next secretary of state. they view going after chuck hagel as being one more notch in this crazy war against the president when a lot of people in the country want congress to focus not so much on chuck hagel as they want them to focus on what's happening with sequester and the budget and debt ceiling and other things that have direct impacts on people's lives. from a policy standpoint, does this come down to bush era neocon, that reminds them that he opposed the war. >> he did oppose the surge. for republicans this is about somebody whom they disagree with on policy and never liked that much in the senate because he wasn't the kind of senator that had a lot of friends, that played the relationship game at a high level. and so it's not like he has solid friendships that ca
. >> yeah. so, look, all in all, how is 2013 going to be compared to 2012? we have u.s. elections, i.t. companies, business from the u.s. there's a lot of uncertainty over the fiscal cliff. has there been a withdraw of investment but maybe it will bounce back? albeit, you've still got to get through debt ceiling and other negotiations. >> i think 2013 compared to 2012 and 2013, 2013 will be more positive. for the election year in europe and considering most of the companies infrastructure is more than 50% of the exposure to the u.s. market. most companies who have their renewal budgets, they tried to push it to the next year, the election budgets. so most companies do have good exposure to the u.s. i think 2013 is still better than 2013 compared to 2012. >> there's a lot of talk about on-shoring of business by the u.s. certainly with regard to manufacturing, you've got the natural gas boom in the u.s. which is making it much more attractive for the u.s. to manufacture stuff on-shore as well as 3g, 2g manufacturing. are there any factors on the software side that can have an impact on
a senator. said he would only serve two terms. only served two terms. and when he was elected the second time, he was elected with 83% of the vote. this is a guy respected by his fellow citizens of nebraska. served here for a total of 12 years. and what did he do when he left the senate? he became an academic in georgetown, school of foreign service, teaching the new leaders. he also has been co-chairman of the president's intelligence advisory board. he is also on the defense policy board. this is a gentleman who knows all of these issues in depth. he is a fellow who speaks his mind. he sometimes gets in trouble with those who think he should not speak his mind but he says what he believes and he sticks with it. so the issues that are being raised now are important issues and that's why we have a confirmation hearing and i'm sure that chuck will be able to deal with those issues at the hearing. >> let's go through a few of them. >> all right. >> on iran, he has been criticized for his views, he failed to label iran's revolutionary guard a terror organization, advocated direct talks with
to justify. you know how the sunlight foundation added up political spending in this past election to see who got the most bang for their buck in their political spending? it was really bad on the right. the republican party's house campaign committee spent almost $65 million, but only 32% of what they spent went to campaigns in which their candidate was successful. so two-to-one, their money was spent on losing. it was worse for the republican party's senate campaign. for their investment of $32 million, only 24% paid off in terms of races that went the way they wanted to. three to one, their money was spent losing. freedomworks was about the same. and the chamber of commerce, which is supposed to be such an impressible and unassailable campaign juggernaut, the chamber of commerce spent $32 million, but less than 7% of what they spent went to winning candidates they wanted to win, or against losing candidates that they wanted to lose. less than 7%. they were 93% ineffective in what they spent. even worse than that was karl rove's american crossroads, which was like the conservative politics
election because of controversial statements on the israeli reluctance. among the reason for that concern and in some cases outright opposition. seven of the 12 republican members of the armed services committee expressing some opposition with at least three senators already saying they will vote no. senator david fisher saying, i will be a no-vote and on the floor. south carolina senator lindsay gramm calling hegel and antagonistic and in-your-face nomination to all of those who support israel. freshman senator ted crews of texas absolutely unloading while calling him too weak for the job >> it is interesting. the president seems bound and determined to proceed down this path despite the fact that his record is troubling. he has not been a friend, and in my view, the united states should stand unshakeable with the nation of israel, and he is consistently advocating weakness with respect to our enemies, with respect to the nation of iran, he has exposed sanctions, and the job of the secretary of defense is to be a serious, credible strength and a deterrent and, unfortunately, i think weak
election. a dramatic -- dramatic element in his success and obviously the republican party recognizes it's harsh language, some rhetoric used by mitt romney and other republicans around the country didn't help its chance of gaining support within that community. john boehner, the speaker of the house, has said that they need to have a more practical, a more pragmatic approach to this issue, so i think in many ways the white house feels confidently that -- that it has the lead on this issue right now and that it has the public on its side as well. >> all right. nbc's peter alexander with that latest development. thank you so much, peter. i want to bring in the political reporter for slate and msnbc contributor. dave, what do you think about this? it's called comprehensive immigration reform, so is this a surprise at all? >> oh, it's not a surprise. it was a promise that president obama made when he was elected the first time. >> right. >> the worry i think if you're an advocate for this is when you read stories about who might support this. you don't see many house republicans being quote
in the next election, in fact, we lost the house for multiple reasons. but that was one of them. and -- but they came back in this period between election and now in the lame duck period and said they would do it again. it was so important to our country. >> we'll see. the fact of the matter is, where this goes, what is the political will as far as the white house is concerned, they can make a pragmatic argument that if they go with a smaller package it actually has a chance of passing if it has consensus but it could disappoint a lot of folks that want to see the white house go bigger and bolder on this issue. >>> afghan president hamid karzai is in town. he's going to be discussing the u.s. role in afghanistan post-2014. the u.s. or at least the white house is signaling it wants out of afghanistan and the white house disclosing a zero option. that is withdrawal or bust as a negotiating tactic. that's what this is. while troop levels aren't formally on the menu, the scope and size of the post-2014 force will be the focus of this trip by karzai and includes he's got meetings at
americans for responsible solutions. they say their goal is to, quote, encourage elected officials to stand up for solutions that will prevent gun violence. it's a new political pressure group, in other words. congresswoman gabby giffords and her husband launched this today in a high profile well done media blitz. they sat through a moving interview with diane sawyer. they published a joint op said in usa today where they demanded change from washington. but they also pointed to their own unique role in this fight, not just with the former congresswoman as a victim of gun violence, but with her having been a member of congress who was a staunch supporter of the second amendment. gabby giffords was a very pro-gun rights democratic member of congress. she and her husband are not come my liberal pinkos coming to confiscate yours guns. they are both gun owners themselves. forget the boogie man of big bad government coming to dispose you of your firearms. as a combat veteran, we do not want to take away your guns any more than we want to give up the two guns that we have locked in safe at home.
to imagine they're now going to come back and actually do something. >> if only there were a senator elected to washington -- >> who cared about the consumer. >> -- that steve rattner supported. >> i think i know where we're going. >> if only there were that person. you could just check them off. >> you know what? there is. >> steve didn't support him. >> absolutely. you are going to come around on elizabeth warren. you just are. who doesn't? elizabeth warren said this on the issue. aig's reckless bets nearly crashed our entire economy. taxpayers across this country saved aig from ruin. and it would be outrageous for this company to turn around and sue the federal government because they think the deal wasn't generous enough. steve. >> so i agree with elizabeth warren who's completely right. >> that's all i need to hear. you just made my morning. >> january 9th of the new session. >> check right there. >> it's amazing what a victory does. >> come on. >> something about 1,000 fathers and orphans. >> something like that. something like that. so i'm curious, mika. i'm reading "the new york time
, the women of america, got you re-elected. all right. that does it for us here at "the cycle." martin, it's all yours. >> a true, true crystal ball. it's thursday, january the 10th. ladies and gentlemen, the nra has come to the white house. >> the gun debate is raging. >> later i meet with the nra. >> freedom is not a handgun on the hip of every teacher. >> work it into the prom them. enchantment under the siege. >> no one needs ten bullets to kill a deer. >> that cheesy grin. >> little 6-year-old kids riddled with bullet holes. >> that joe biden just can't wipe off his face. >> president barack obama is considering taking executive action aimed at limiting your second amendment rights. >> could only be to take guns away from people. >> i don't quite understand why everybody would be afraid. >> it has been enough. >> the nra, which wants to be feared and respected, is not respected and should no longer be feared. >> i agree with wane lapierre, you, sir, are [ bleep ] in the head. ♪ >> another hectic day in washington and just ahead we'll have more on the president's cabinet reshuffle, i
's capital are deals. it's a place created for one thing, for elected people from across this country to come and meet, get to know each other, and find a way to direct the country. the working principle is that we the american people can send people here who can do the job to make things work, to make government of, by and for the people be just that. the movie "lincoln," especially the second half of the movie, the part about winning congressional passage of the 13th amendment to outlaw slavery is about washington doing its job. people get squeezed. they get paid off with jobs. in short, they get worked. go see "lincoln," or go back and watch "recan" and see how things work on the inside. that's "hardball" for now, thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz start right now. >> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. the nra wants a assault weapons ban off the table. the white house disagrees. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i do not think there is going to be a ban on so-called assault weapons passed by the congress. >> the nra continues
of infamy, al elects. here is my point. it bugs me as a white guy to be blunt about it, i think it's an embarrassment to white people as well as a travesty in our country generally that people engage in this crap at this point in our history. when we do have an african-american president, ought to be proud of the damn fact instead of going in the other direction. what i can't believe is the people i talk to say what are you talking about matthews? we're not engaging in race-baiting. you're hearing something here. and that's what really bugs me about people that don't want to hear for some sick reason, don't want to hear what's going on here, and thank god colin powell finally came out and called out these guys like reince priebus the head of the party. he didn't call him by name. he was a gentleman, although i don't know why he was. i would have called out sarah palin. i'd have called out sununu. these are names of people that use that rotten language. >> and the list goes on, right, chris? rand paul -- >> donald trump. >> rand paul doesn't support the voting rights act. haley barb
've got to say, if you look at how the republican party reacted the first time president obama was elected, i wrote a book that basically could be boiled down to don't lose your -- al roker at the white house. >> exactly. >> they didn't listen. they went out, they engaged in birtherism, they called the president a racist who hated all white people, and they went so far right and so extreme that they lost middle america. and so yeah, we lost another presidential election. look at the cover of "drudge" which i think magnificently reflects the feelings of conservatives, where the conservative movement is. and you know, he links stories that people want to see, and he does it better than anybody else. this weekend, i went on "drudge." and at the top of it is a story of survivalists. that are buying property, arming themselves and building walls out west. you have sean hannity who is talking about secession. you have another talk radio host whose name isn't even worth mentioning that is talking basically about -- about how the federal government is coming in and taking weapons, you know. there'
, italian finance minister said what italy needed to achieve after its critical elections. what are you doing? nothing. are you stealing our daughter's school supplies and taking them to work? no, i was just looking for my stapler and my... this thing. i save money by using fedex ground and buy my own supplies. that's a great idea. i'm going to go... we got clients in today. [ male announcer ] save on ground shipping at fedex office. >>> welcome back to the program. under draft proposals seen by the financial times, struggling companies will either have to invest in failing banks alongside the european stability mechanism or guarantee the esm against any losses. eurozone officials declined to comment on the report. >>> as we mentioned ahead of the show, david cameron is beginning to feel the heat. over the weekend, just 26% members would like to maintain britain's current relationship with europe. while 29% want them to be less restrictive or for britain to exit the block entirely. >> do you think this is something like scottish independence whereby the more they implement it, the more
's that like high schoolers, our elected leaders are worried more about popularity than actually accomplishing something. we ask only are they conservative enough? are they liberal enough? well, that's the way teenagers evaluate one another? is it she praut enough? is he cool enough? who cares if she's failing math or he's dealing drugs after school? voters need only be reminded that kids today will be running the country tomorrow. let's teach them all a valuable lesson by finally hold our representatives to higher standards. because the message to kids and congress is the same, you aren't special just for existing. that does it for "the cycle." martin, krystal has a message. >> very quickly want to wish my mother and sister heidi a happy birthday. >> that's lovely. many, many warmest congratulations to them. thank you for sharing that. and good afternoon. it's tuesday, january the 8th, and we are two years removed from the tragedy in tucson. two years and 11 more mass shootings in america. >> breaking news from gabrielle giffords. two years ago today she was shot. >> we can't tolerate this an
with obsession of budgets and elections, 2013 is shaping up a little different. our leaders may actually do something to reign in gun violence. we don't know if this momentum will last, if congress will actually act. there's been a lot of talk of an executive order. this time at least feels different. this week, vice president biden held a series of task force meetings with various stakeholders in the gun debate, delivering a set of recommendations to the president based on that input as soon as tuesday. >> there's got to be some common ground here to not solve every problem, but diminish the probability that what we've seen in these mass shootings would occur and diminish the probability that children are at risk in their schools. >> these meetings weren't just some photo-op. even the nra attended. after the meetings, it trashed the agenda as an attack on the second amendment. walmart, probably the biggest gun seller, was shamed, i guess, into showing up. retailer originally said executives couldn't attend. they had scheduling difficult s difficulties. ative course of criticism, they chan
. and we just had an election. and elections have consequences, alex. and i think the congressman is absolutely right that we are now drifting toward a parliamentary system. but we don't have a parliamentary system. we have a different system. and in our system the results of the election are meaningful. and the results of this election should suggest to democrats and republicans that the president, unless there is some egregious problem, deserves to have his own choices in government. >> alex, let me just say, the senate has the responsibility to advise and consent. and given the filibuster rules you have to find five republicans, and he'll find out quickly who his friends are. people forget that this election, the republicans held the house. although institutionally they have a majority there, given voting rights and the way the districts are created, the president's got to come to grips with that and somehow both sides are going to find their way out of this. it's going to be just two years of being in the ring, exchanging punches. >> but ultimately, jonathan, your take on chuc
governme spending you were control is every, and thisser av tax cuts for everyone is over, he got elected arguing at least hiking taxes on the rich, is the country changing more barack obama's way? >> i think it is changing to this extent, that is that people do not realize, and unfortunately the republicans did not rebut what the period said when he said things like the rich are not paying their full share, as we pointed out they are paying more than their share, but nobody pointed out the facts on the other side. there is one big difference between the two presidents, that is ronald reagan always toi td e truth. neil: you have to wonder with a president who is set on not going far in spending cuts, and ascertaining more tax hikes, what the environment will be like in washington, especially with a lot of republicans they seem to be running scad. >> that is where just as mayor giuliani said, the republicans should not run scared, they should tell the truth, and get the facts out to the people. >> jim: but they are not doing it. >> they are not doing it. maybe the mainstream media is ignor
ban in '94, they had the '94 elections, and democrats -- and some of those districts were defeated largely because the nra was able to whip up their members in a frenzy. this is a classic political science case study of an interest group that is very intense and cares almost about this thing alone. on the top list of concerns, guns are one through ten, against a public that cares about this and a lot of other things and whose attention may wax and wane depending what else is going on in their lives. they are very intense, they have a lot of money, and it's a good sign that liberal groups and groups like the mayors that bloomberg is supporting -- >> mayors against guns. >> are getting out there and trying to get their foot into the debate politically with donations but also this changing the dynamics because this can't go forward and succeed unless there's a strong coalition including police and citizens and public health advocates fighting as hard as the nra fights. >> eric holder, the attorney general, met with retailers including the nation's largest seller of firearms, walmart,
dan malloy is one of the elected leaders talking to vice president biden yesterday. let me play to you what he said this morning. >> he's got this down pretty well. he understands what we need to do to make it less likely that these things are going to happen in our -- in our cities and towns. and these mass murders could be limited, at least, going into the future, if some common sense things are taken -- the magazine thing is very big. >> the top two limit, magazines and closed-gun show loopholes. take us inside the hill here and take us inside the white house, shira, what are the chances this gets done? >> it's very doable. if there's ever a chance for congress to pass measures this is it. but the road is complicated. you have democrats controlling the senate but many of those are fairly conservative democrats supported by the nra in the past. then you have the house which is obviously controlled by republicans, many of whom are conservative. it's a difficult path to pass this legislation. that's why it's interesting to hear joe biden mention the executive order issue and whether he
in this country. he promised before the election board that after the election you start to do something. he has this whole public-relations -- relation operation financed to a mere blumberg of new york that was ready to swing into action. what newtown gave him was an excuse to do what they wanted to do for some time, which is to launch a full breath attack on the second amendment, and that is what they're doing door regardless of what the president claims. you know, lou, we had a representative at the meeting with vice-president biden. before those meetings everyone was sure that we, the administration, enter these with an open mind. we got to the meeting, and one of the first things the vice-president said was he in the president had very strong feelings about firearms that are going to proceed regardless of what anyone else thought. they stated their view. we knew what it would be. the problem was that these meetings or asking the wrong question. they were saying, what can we do about guns when they should have been saying to what can we do to protect our children. that is a very different qu
. what i'm concerned about and have been concerned about, since even well before the elections is having seen the president rule by executive order where he has no authority in other areas, i can see that he would just go ahead -- and the vice president has hinted at an executive order that moves toward their gun cone troll agenda. that, i think changes the game and throws into question how legitimate the federal government is. and i would advise mr. obama to consider what happened to george the third when he was doing similar things against the american colonists >> he hasn't banned the importation of ball and powder yet. that was one of the contributing elements to our war for independence. and george the third as you probably know, was so stressed by the loss of his famous favorite colony that he ended his days in a nut house, and i wouldn't wish that on anybody. >> when i talk to you mr. pratt, i always look for some sense of humanity that you could react to the sandy hook massacre in the way that i do and many other people did. and i never see it from you. all i see is a very determ
in a presidential election cycle, we lost. not only conservatives but moderates as well. i think we need to go back to a that message of fiscal responsibility. the american people want fiscal responsibility. they want washington to live within their means just like small businesses and american families and organizations have to every single day. that's our message that wins. we are still here. >> i have something you said to me a year ago on a plane. your comment about the tea party being in disarray. as you are well aware in 2010, you seemed at least from who you supported to be a little bit different. joe miller of ab alaska, i tota have a man crush on this dude. you said, we did exactly what we set out to do, crush the establishment-backed gop candidate. are you being a little bit of a fair weather friend? it is all right if you are. i am just wondering. >> it is interesting how the media lies to portray these situations. i'm a big supporter of the tea party. i think given the finances and situations, there are a lot of people on the outside who it is time for them to come to the inside. they
. tweeting last week on the bill is to "repeal obama care in its xwir entirety." is the last election resonating at all with congressman bachmann? >> this is congresswoman bachmann advancing her views in a way that will go absolutely no where. zero prospect that will happen. but, again, when you have people in districts who are reflecting the most extreme elements in their own party, because primaries are where they face the greatest potential risk, this is what you get. and, you know, michele bachmann made her name as somebody on the right wing of the republican party who was especially aggressive and in your face to democrats and to president obama in particular, she certainly wants to maintain that reputation, and she is not going to get anywhere legislatively with this, but this doesn't -- given who she, what her identity is, probably doesn't hurt her that much politically. >> overall, john, is this a sign that we're off to a certain kind of start? did the 113th congress be as unproductive as 112th was? >> well, we've never left a position, alex, of permanent warfare between two p
. the mother of that child now has a strong message for our elected leaders in washington. >> 20 heartbroken families lost a child in the sandy hook school shooting. i know how much it hurts. my 9-year-old daughter was murdered in the tucson shooting. i have one question for our political leaders. when will you find the courage to stand up to the gun lobby? whose child has to die next? to every mother, we cannot wait. we have to demand a plan. go to demandaplan.org and add your name. >> the ad is part of a campaign of the group mayors against illegal guns. demand a plan has a three-step solution to reduce gun violence in america. they want a criminal background check for every gun sold in the country. a ban on assault weapons and high capacity ammunition magazines. and they want to make gun trafficking a federal crime, all common sense stuff. groups like demand a plan want to keep the focus on this issue as vice president joe biden and his task force hold meetings this week to create a path forward. tomorrow, wednesday, the vice president will meet with the victims groups and gun safety effo
it. he may not say it the same way bush said it after his re-election to a second term, but obama believes that he's earned political capital, particularly in national security and he's going to use it. >>> finally, vice president biden will meet with gun violence victims groups and gun safety organizations tomorrow as the white house prepared to unveil its proposals on gun violence as early as next week. on the second anniversary of the tucson shooting, after traveling to newtown, connecticut, and the wake of that massacre, former congresswoman gabby giffords and her husband, mark kelly, announcing the formation of a new organization aimed at persuading elected officials to act on some form of gun control. >> first couple that we spoke to dad took out a cell phone and showed us a picture of his daughter. and i just about lost it. >> enough. >> in a "usa today" op-ed the two write this. in response to a horrific series of shootings that has shown t terror in our communities and left one of its own bleeding and near death in a tucson parking lot. congress has done something quite e
a lot of money on the elections last cycle. they didn't have a lot to show for it especially if you look at results. a lot of their candidates lost. we are looking at return on their investment they had a low return on investment. they are very strong lobby. think the issue is who is going to remember the voices of the american people in this debate. >> reporter: president obama has said he wants to lay it on some of the proposals his task force gives him in the state of the union address. that task force led by the vice president is going to give president obama their recommendations on tuesday in the state of the union is scheduled for february 12th, one month from yesterday. >> gregg: peter, thanks very much. >> fox news is taking a closer look at the gun control debate with a special hannity airing tonight featuring a studio audience compromised some of the new yorkers who were outed by the journal news for having gun permits. that is at 9:00 p.m. eastern time right here on fox news channel. >> arthel: growing concerns over the shortages of flu vaccines as sick americans are overcrow
nearly 50% it is is a committed left-wing paper in the recent election it endorsed 36 candidates. all democrats. it's clear ms. hasan is running ideological operation that wants to punish legal gun owners. charlie who lives in caro, iowa has a question for ms. hasan would it be accept to be her if a list of persons who received welfare payments or unemployment insurance are published in the newspaper? i think i can answer for her, charlie. no. the reason hasan and her crew published the names of legal gun owners was to desdisparage them. shield never do that to those though receive entitlements because that would go against they're orthodoxy. there is no question she should be dismissed by the gannett corporation. meantime loons on the other side are issuing death threats and publishing personal information about journal news personnel. that is not acceptable. the journal news violated the privacy of law abiding americans, period. the newspaper is shamed. it will never recover in the minds of fair minded people. however, by issuing threats and trying to bring personal harm to those at
election. it turns out we're in for this fight again. >> the amendment i bring to the floor tonight would deny any and all funding to planned parenthood and its affiliates for the rest of the fiscal year. >> that was mike pence leading the charge in 2011 to defund planned parenthood. it did not stop with his exit from congress. enter marsha blackburn. she's on the show a lot. and her kickoff this time to the 113th congress. >> we felt like that, to start the year off on the very first day that we would go ahead and get the bill filed. what it does is to defund planned parenthood. it would block their ability to get taxpayer money, and we know that planned parenthood is basically big abortion business. >> there you have it. she's not alone. marsha blackburn's colleague also reintroduced the same bill. planned parenthood president weighed in. quote, they apparently learned nothing from the result of the last election where americans said they do not want politicians dictating women's access to health care. >>> finally seeing this signature on the paper dollar. douglas dillon. now that jack
this was not a surprise. he said he was going to do it before he got elected. once he got elected, he did it. he tripled the number of troops there, and he put this long, long end date on when the war was going to end, at the end of 2014, even after killing osama bin laden when guys like chuck hagel were saying okay, osama bin laden is dead. can we go now? we have not gone. and there is potentially another two years of it not ending ahead of us. by picking chuck hagel as defense secretary today, yes, the president has picked a political fight, although probably it's one that he can win. but by picking john brennan and chuck hagel together today, the president has made a complicated but emphatic statement about national security and how he intends to be remembered. and how he intends to either keep fighting or bringing americans home from the fighting after 12 long years over the course of this second presidential term. joining us now is andrea mitchell. she is nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent. andrea, thanks for being here. i appreciate you taking the time. >> thank you. happy new year. i haven
for the program. 1; last year, in the 2012 election cycle, the nra contributed $20 million to federal candidates, people running for congress and for president. gun control groups, $20 million for the nra, $4,000 for the gun control groups and more than 50% of the members of the new congress get an "a" rating for the nra. so that's a sense of the clout that the nra has. i think if anything happens, legislatively, there will be regulatory changes and executive action, if anything happens, it will be smaller, rather than bigger. i think it will be a very hard row to eliminate assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. 40% of all gun sales, there is no background check, maybe if not universal, you will see expansion to that. >> shannon: we will see what recommends out. thank you for the preview of your show. >> you bet. >> shannon: the exclusive interviews and watch "fox news sunday" right after america's news headquarters. chris and leaders of gun groups from both sides tackle the debate over the seconds amendment. you will not want to miss that. folks in beijing are not breathing easy, being to
. they recognize there's a gubernatorial election coming up. i think what sweeney should be doing is saying who is going to be the democratic candidate and how can we create a message in our state, forget national shows. in our state to go chris christie. otherwise, it's sour grapes, so stop wasting your time complaining about praying for a storm. find a candidate first, then get a message. >> this raises a really interesting point though, which is that the whole country assumes chris christie is going to run and he's. >> reporter: popular right now. and then when you actually run, people start throwing at you. they did with mitt romney, about his taxes, about the education rank of massachusetts. there were all kinds of things. things like having an unemployment rate 2% higher, that could change. or you could look at these statistics and they could change how you think about how he will do in a republican primary. >> the big thing is that chris christie has this profile where he's saying i'm a problem solver, a bipartisan guy. i get things done, but the thing is that there are two big democrati
iraq war veteran elected to congress. and nia malika henderson, first, let me thank you both for being here tonight. congressman, you've been long for a pullout. we should have never extended it. what's your reaction of speeding up the withdrawal of u.s. troops? >> reverend, today is a great day for the american troops, but also to our country. the fact that the president's been very clear, we're accelerating the fact that we're bringing our troops home. thank goodness. we are shifting to a counter terrorism doctrine. we are bringing our troops home because they did their job. they took out bin laden. the longest war in american history, over ten years time, are coming home. i gave president obama credit because he had the guts to do the right thing. president obama did the right thing for american security and american troops. >> it is to wish that they would have never gone this far and would have to give him credit. when you look at the fact that the numbers behind the afghanistan war is astounding. they are 11.3 years, the cost of the war, $557.3 billion. dead, 2,174, wounded, 17,6
. newly elected senator elizabeth warren called the idea of suing the government outrageous, saying aig was, quote, biting the hand that fed them. public relations blunder came at a particularly bad time for the company which was looking to remake its image with a series of ads titled "thank you america." >> the leading global insurance company based right here in america. >> we've repaid every dollar america lent to us. >> everything, plus a profit of more than $22 billion. >> for the american people. >> thank you, america. >> helping people recover and rebuild. that's what we do. now let's bring on tomorrow. >> so they just rolled out those ads a week ago and then came out and threatened to sue the government. >> and on twitter, what we were asking yesterday, what would elizabeth warren do, is now becoming a, i don't know -- >> a hash tag? >> yes. exactly. >> that's huge. >> what's the "i" for in aig, ingrate? >> they are not joining the lawsuit. editorial page of "the wall street journal" suggests that aig probably did the right thing by not joining the lawsuit, but it doesn't mean t
to loosen on immigration, that all of a sudden you're going to lose elections. i see that as the ticket to winning elections today. >> mike, the followed the power of the gun lobby for a long time. can somebody do that? can a republican do that? >> i think a republican can do almost anything on universal background checks. universal background checks is the key. that's the first step. get that in there. almost -- you'd almost want to say, the vice president's task force would almost want to say, okay, next thursday in the house, we're going to have a vote on universal background checks. that's the steppingstone to get us to some sensible position. how can anyone, with any common sense, no matter where you are in the ideological spectrum, be against universal background checks? >> and by the way, i've seen some polls, like 85% of americans want universal background checks. >> yeah. >> by a republican pollster. 85% want universal background checks which would go a long way in getting rid of some of the insanity that we see at gun shows and online where there are no background checks. >> i
? supposedly the constitution says there's supposed to be new elections in 30 days. he doesn't want that to happen. so are you going to see chaos in the streets, are you going to see protests from the position? -- the position in the next couple of weeks? why do we care? biggest reserves of oil in the western hemisphere, second largest in the world. take a shot of the wall. we have this graphic. i think this is really telling. so on the left, way on the left, the blue are the reserves of venezuela, the green is the production. go a few columns over to the united states. we have very little in the way of reserves compared to venezuela. our production is much, much higher. so the markets are betting, and if you look at the venezuelan stock market or venezuelan bonds of which are widely held in fixed income portfolios, the betting is that post chavez we get closer to the point where the country starts reinvesting in its oil facilities. >> and production -- >> then production would go up. we would have greater supplies. plus, more would come back to the united states because, remember,

of losing the next election, we would have changes in gun laws like we need. we would have, like what you suggest, for example, like closing the loopholes for gun shows. we would have more regulation. i think we need more discussion, not less. and we need to see probably more of the extremists, because that's what's frightening. and the idea that he might have a gun in his hand is terrifying. >> he owns 50 guns, which i found part of the most scary thing. abby, your father ran for president and you know the system in washington better for many. the reason i ask you, i read your tweets today, which were pretty doom laden about this. do you have any hope if it does go to congress, they'll pass anything involving gun control legislation? >> i want to point out, it's not even worth mentioning this guy's name. he does not represent america. this is the same guy that said that the u.s. government is involved in oklahoma bombings and 9/11. so it's just, he really lives in the land of wacky. but, all we're asking for is a rational conversation about gun control. i think that's what you were askin
